About Auldern Academy
Auldern’s campus is a jewel, nestled in the North Carolina landscape outside the town of Siler City. We are near both the Raleigh-Durham (Research Triangle) and Chapel Hill areas, so our students get the best of both worlds – a country-like atmosphere of small town life as well as the hustle and bustle of metropolitan areas that are full of museums, colleges and universities, and industry. Most of our parents fly into the Raleigh-Durham airport when visiting, with just a short 45 minute drive to campus.
We treat girls with:
- Substance Abuse
- Behavioral Disorders
- Eating Disorders (not active)
- Impulse Control Issues Mood Instability
While we can always provide a more detailed list of the diagnoses our girls may present; what’s important is that we have over 15 years of experience working with young women from all over the United States. Additionally, we are not a huge program, so we can be structured, yet flexible to meet the individual needs of our girls. Auldern’s small size fosters a sense of belonging. It provides a more intimate, personalized living and learning environment, as well as a cohesive vision among staff.
Our Approach Fits Our Students
The intimate, nurturing environment at Auldern is designed to foster strong and powerful relationships that have the power to both educate and heal. Auldern girls quickly build healthy, lasting friendships with each other – even if they have struggled in this area before. They also develop supportive connections with faculty and staff members. Our campus is a warm, emotionally safe environment where students meet, with confidence, the challenges of rigorous academics, social and family relationships.
Our programming consists of three overlapping pillars: the Clinical Department, the Academic Department, and the Student Life Department. This approach reflects our commitment to meeting the needs of the whole student – intellectually, emotionally and socially.
Please visit each department on our website to learn more about them and how all three work together for our girls.
